The only reason we’re all so excited to receive the latest version of Android is that of all the new features it brings. Google sent the Android fanbase into a whirlwind by releasing Android 9.0 P Developer preview this month, and users can’t get enough of what it has to offer already.
Not only will be the next major version of Android be fairly exclusive to the Pixel devices for the first few months, but it may not even make it to most of the Android devices. It only seems fair that you get to enjoy premium features like the Markup tool for doodling and the Quick Reply feature introduced with Android Oreo.

How to get Quick Reply on any Android device
With the release of Android 8.0 Oreo, Google has moved towards offering more productivity with the way you use apps. A large part of this comes with the ability to reply to messages from any app directly from the notification shade. The Quick Reply feature is so useful that it’s a crime to not have it on older Android devices, which is why we love the Material Notification Shade app.
Only compatible with devices below Android 7.1.1 Nougat, the app brings the refreshing design and feature change from Oreo to your outdated device. Not only does the Material Notification Shade app bring the ability to send out quick replies directly from the notification window, but also offers intuitive controls for apps such as music players right from it.
